day a meteorite makes impact with earth in russia. what's really going on here? i came to nasa goddard to find out and get some real answers. >> today the day of an amazing cosmic coincidence. >> the close call happened earlier this afternoon. an astroid called 2012 da14 whizzed pasted earth at about 17 thousands miles per hour. nasa scientists believe da14 was once part of the astroid belt between mars and jupiter and is a remnant of our ancient solar system. the astroid passed under the orbit of some of our weather satellites. it's captivated attention of people at goddard and around the world. we had about 17,000 miles of breathing room from its closest point above the indian ocean and it was about 2,000 miles or so from the nearest satellite orbiting earth. >> space is a really big place, so it's still mostly empty. >> reporter: the approach of da14 may be news to us, but nasa has known about it for a year. it's the meteor that slammed into russia earlier this morning that took them completely by surprise. it's a calculated risk nasa took when they first started studying outer spa
above the earth. traveling about five miles per second. but slow down. nasa says there is absolutely no danger. >> it's not going to cause earthquakes, it's not going to cause any climate change. >> reporter: da14 was first discovered by amateur astronomers last february in spain. since then, nasa has been plotting its path and is certain there will be no impact. its closest approach expected to be near indonesia at 2:24 p.m. eastern on friday. images have already been captured on high-powered telescopes in australia. >> you won't be able to see it with the naked eye. with research and a decent telescope, you have a shot but your best bet may be to do what a lot of people around here will be doing, monitoring the nasa feed online. as it gets closer, nasa's powerful gold stone deep space communications complex will be taking radar imagery, research that could help scientists avoid disaster in the future. back in 1908, a smaller meteor hit in a remote region of siberia, destroying the landscape for hundreds of miles. and scientists blame the dinosaur's demise on a massive astroid. >> t
by nasa standards. >> it is very hard to see. those are only observable in a few days of earth. this one actually slipped by our notice and came into the atmosphere. >> others are under a microscope so to speak. >> nasa monitors 9,000 asteroids and the big ones, a thousand of those, we monitor quite carefully. we call those potentially hazardous objects and look at their orbits and there are many hundreds before we have to worry about close approaches by those objects. >> that is good news. not as good for russia today. the president has ordered aid to be sent to the area and schools are closed because it is zero and the windows are broken. >> right now, nasa is watching for another event unrelated to the meteor, a giant 150' asteroid will fly by earth in the next half hour. observatories around the earth are pointing telescopes in the direction of the asteroid. amy joins us live from the laboratory in oakland where there is a party going on. amy? >> the party will be tonight when we can see it, closest to the earth in the next half hour but we cannot see it. it is so light. the people o
la vega is live at nasa aims in mountain view where people gathered. good afternoon, janine. >> reporter: good afternoon. they were showing a feed of this. now it's just a recording of what it looked like. in the last 40 minutes it came as close as it would to the dearth. just to give you an idea how big it is, we're told it is as big as the size of this entire building, half a football field. on the screen, the asteroid doesn't look that spectacular. it looks like a small dot of light. these are pictures of the astroid being scene from an observatory in australia. it's 150 feet that's been dubbed 2012 da-14. scientists say there's no chance it will hit the earth. space enthusiasts came to watch the asteroid flying by as well as nasa scientists commenting on the significance. we spoke to a nasa expert and a viewer about the asteroid. >> it's coming very close and that gives us a wonderful opportunity to study it up close. and so we can learn a lot more about these types of objects. in terms of its scientist significance, there's depreleft over -- debris left over. >> i think
ten tons. small by nasa standards. >> it is very hard to see. those are only observable in a few days of earth. this one actually slipped by our notice and came into the atmosphere. >> others are under a microscope so to speak. >> nasa monitors 9,000 asteroids and the big ones, a thousand of those, we monitor quite carefully. we call those potentially hazardous objects and look at their orbits and there are many hundreds before we have to worry about close approaches by those objects. >> that is good news. not as good for russia today. the president has ordered aid to be sent to the area and schools are closed because it is zero and the windows are broken. >> right now, nasa is watching for another event unrelated to the meteor, a giant 150' asteroid will fly by earth in the next half hour. observatories around the earth are pointing telescopes in the direction of the asteroid. amy joins us live from the laboratory in oakland where there is a party going on. amy? >> the party will be tonight when we can see it, closest to the earth in the next half hour but we cannot see it. it is so
or totally unrelated. this is nasa and there's little ole earth and the asteroid you can see the distance away from us, courtesy of nasa. right now a mere 25,000 miles, six minutes ago before we went on the air, it was at 27,000 miles, going very fast. and so, that's how they have it calculated not going to hit us or graze us, but buzz us in about an hour and ten minutes right here. i hope we live. just kidding. they say it's not going to hit us. not totally true and, but they say there's no 'cause for concern, hello. you never know, do you? and in other news we're following another major story for you today as the president heads to the windy city, his hometown, to deliver what's been billed pass a purely economic address. but there's he a growing sense that the economy will not be the only topic of discussion. this 174 shootings and 44 murders, so far, reported in chicago. that's just by february 3rd alone, all right? so it's going to get worse and it was really bad last year. last year, the city saw 506 murders, and more than 2400 shootings. and what a mess! all this after this 15-year
this would happen. nasa facing cut, and for once, i wonder if we should be spending. when they say it's not, it's always about "money." ♪ all right, starting off tonight with the plan to push off the sequester and save us all, senate democrats announced the new alternative to a $110 billion bill to replace the spending cuts until january 2 of 20 # 14, and there's already a lot of criticism, surprise, surprise, but as it stands, we are just 14 days away from when the deep across the board cuts are set to take effect. with me, now, is today's austin power panel. we have gretchen, better market ceo, dennis, and rich, "forbes" contributor. what do you think the democrats planned? >> look, it's the beginning, a negotiating appointment, dead on arrival, will never happen, but elements of it are interesting. melissa: like what? what do you like? >> i like the scaled down cuts to defense. i like the fact that we're timely maybe starting to talk about cutting farm subsidies. i think at the end of the day there's no chance that we're going to see more tax increases, but i'd like to see them get to
a little over half hour ago and nasa says it's the closest one of its kind to approach our planet. we did a little digging to get more information on it. it's known as 2012-d.a. 14. the asteroid is 150 feet and destined for earth's backyard. experts say this is not to be confused with russia's meteor. >> the european space agency has run the videotape backwards tracing the trajectory of this object and it doesn't seem to have a direct relationship between d.a.-14. >> reporter: before you start recalling 1998's film "armageddon," think again. it's not going to impact earth. >> we can say with great confidence there is no chance of it hitting the earth. >> reporter: as far as asteroids go, this is a little one. the one that wiped out dinosaurs was six miles across. nasa says the asteroid will miss us by 17,200 miles. to put that in perspective, that's closer than the television satellites beaming your signal right now. researchers hope this asteroid can help them learn how to avoid collisions with larger ones, which could destroy the earth. >> we'll
planet. it happened in the past hour, nasa said the meteorite in russia had nothing to do with the asteroid, about the size of half a football field. joining me, astronomer david dundee. the question is, as i have just answered, there was nothing to do with the two of them one is more common than the other. meteorites in the sky of russia coming down. how rare is that? >> well, meteorite impacts happen all the time. the earth picks up tons of debris every day but it's usually in the form of dust and smaller objects. one the size of what we saw in russia is a once in a decade thing. last time this happened was about ten years ago, over in the pakistan, india region of the world. but the two objects are totally unrelated and one of the other big things to consider is that you're separating the two events by 14 hours. remember, the earth is hurling around the sun at 19 miles per second so we're in a different neighborhood than weapon the meet -- when the meteor came in in russia. >> that's interesting. everything's moving at once. how fast was this thing going? >> the top sea

to watch these things. and nasa has a near-earth program. it is, i would argue, it is underfunded because of what's at stake here both in the sense of preparedness and dealing with injury and upset. but as to deal with international incidents that might occur. you mentioned the 2002 meteorite over the mediterranean, at the time, the deputy director said if this would have happened over the subcontinent it might have been mistaken for a nuclear explosion in this belligerent stand off between india and pakistan at the time. there are certainly occasions back in the soviet days when the united states and russia mistook natural occurrences for what might have been belligerent events. and so, you have to watch these things. and the nasa near-earth program is important for all of those reasons. as you pointed out, as your other guest pointed out, the energy that's contained in just say small rock, you know, a foot across or a couple of feet across, traveling at these velocities can pack a lot of energy. so when it explodes, it's as if a nuclear explosion went off. obviously, not the radiation a

this afternoon around 2:25 eastern. nasa didn't know about the astroid until a year ago when an amateur astronomer just happened to spot it in our skies. but it seems a remote part of russia did get a visitor from space. at least one meteorite streaked across the sky this morning triggering powerful shockwaves. witnesses say the noise set off car alarms and broke windows and damaged a factory. at least 250 people were hurt, mostly cuts from broken glass. thousands of russian troops were put on alert. >> apparently according to the latest information we have, 20,000 first responders are being sent to the scene, three aircraft surveying the damage from the scene. again, all those folks injured from the broken glass of all the stuff that shattered during the collision. >> and it's cold there, so the people with shattered windows are in the freezing cold. so a lot going on. >>> now let's check our weather. mountain snow in the central rockies. showers from tennessee to southern illinois. heavy rain from orlando southward. snow around the great lakes and northern new england. >>> mostly 50s
